This dynamic local initiative is designed to inspire West Kimberley High School students, provide information on education, training and employment opportunities and connect them with the hard working businesses and services that exist in their community. We are pleased to announce that the dates for this year's Careers week will be May 7th to 11th, with the Careers Expo being held on Friday May 11th at Broome Senior High School. Please get involved and support

Building on the success of the 2017 Careers Week & Expo, it is anticipated that we will once again attract students from high schools across the West Kimberley including Bidyadanga, Derby, One Arm Point, Yirramlay, Fitzroy Crossing and Broome. Careers Week 2017 consisted of interactive TAFE tours, Speed Careering, University Presentations, Workplace visits, Key note speaker culminating in a Careers Expo on the Friday. 

In 2018, the Careers Expo will be another great opportunity for local businesses and community organisations to shine, exhibiting to showcase local education, training and job opportunities. This is considered a unique opportunity for students to learn about what it is you do and why. It is an opportunity for both parties to connect faces to names and for employers to meet their future workforce. For the students creating a connection between their current education choices and future employment opportunities is critical to inspire them to achieve their goals and understand what is on offer in their own community

An outstanding array of resources will be focused on this week, the day and the event. The planning group will look to further develop the concept each year to ensure that it can reach healthy sustainability and contribute each year to bridging the gap between school and careers.

Your participation in this project will help ensure that Broome remains a sustainable regional centre, where local children can find satisfying jobs and careers in local employment. We would love to promote your support by listing  you on this webpage, and linking it to your member listing.
